Liked: Cheap for a 6 bed dorm, good facilities, cozy bed, friendly people and travellers, quiet at night, near to a huge shopping center.

Disliked: The upstairs kitchen in the left building upstairs smells like... Sorry, but it's disgusting to prepare meals there. A bit clean up could be necessary for the whole complex (inside the buildings)

Liked: A shared room don't coast you a lot of money. The atmosphere is okee.

Disliked: The hostel is behind the central shopping centre and because of this location a bit far away from the central and the lagoon. I didn' t like walking alone from or to the hostel to the centre (like the lagoon) at night.

Liked: The house had alot of character and was very peaceful. I arrived late in the night and had a warm welcome from the cat, Sam, who was sleeping outside my door. The staff was great help and knew the best places to go. It was great to have a shower in our room and although we did pay for a room with AC it wasnt a huge extra cost and was worth it. Overall I enjoyed my stay and the facilities.

Disliked: The beds were just okay, and it was a little further from the center of town then I had expected which was a problem when it rained all day.
